Program Administration Scale (PAS) 2nd. Ed.

by Teri N. Talan and Paula Jorde Bloom

Research consistently finds that high-quality administrative practices are crucial for ensuring beneficial results for children and families.  This valuable tool includes 25 items clustered in 10 subscales, which measure both leadership and management functions of center-based early care and education programs. The PAS can be used in multiple ways: program self-improvement, technical assistance and monitoring, research and evaluation, and public awareness.

This second edition of the PAS includes updated national norms and minor refinements to support the reliable use of the instrument and reflect best practices in early childhood program administration.
